The Marmot Slopestar is a comfortable insulated ski pant that is good for dry days on the slopes. The Marmot Slopestar has a regular fit that runs slightly on the big side. Our tester was a medium in the Slopestar, but in that size they do feel slightly baggy. The Marmot Slopestar does offer decent insulation, so if you run even slightly warm, you could probably get away with a smaller size and not layer underneath. Those of you that like to layer may want to opt for the larger size. The Marmot Slopestar isn’t one of Marmots more technical pants, but it still offers decent waterproofing and breathability for the casual resort rider. I wouldn’t wear these in areas where I’d be skiing in deep wet snow a lot, but for dryer climates they work just fine. The Marmot Slopstar is similar to the Marmot Skyline, but with a different arrangement of pockets. The Marmot Slopestar has two zippered pockets on the right side and one on the left. They offer enough room to bring a few items along, but I’d like to see a few more pockets. Also, unlike the Skyline, the Marmot Slopestar does have outer ventilation. So if you run a bit warm, you can use the vents to cool down quickly. The Marmot Slopestar isn’t the most technical pant, but it’s a solid resort pant for casual skiers in dryer climates.

Turn On’s: Size M Pants that have a bit more room to fit my thighs and big butt, but fit well in the waist. That way, not only can I utilize my pockets, I can also ride freely and comfortably on the hill.
Turn Off’s: Size M Pants that fit too tight in the thigh so I can’t use my pockets but so loose in the waist they fall down and I get snow in my pants.
